I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Theater Thursday - This One's For the Girls

What: This One's For the Girls

             New York, NY

Who: Teens and Up

When: Through June 30, 2018

Me  - This One's For the Girls is a show about the history of woman through song. It is a bunch of different songs from different periods of time.  There wasn't much of a plot. It was good. I liked the songs in the show although I don't remember any of them now. Some of them I knew before, some I didn't. The acting was good. The singing was lovely. They didn't really have much of a set. The music was the best part of the show. It was interesting way to show how much things have changed for women over the years. Women would really like this show.

Mom - If you want to learn about the history of women in this country in a fun and interesting way, go and see this musical. The songs range from such submissive tunes as Stand by Your Man and I Will Follow You to such take charge anthems as I Am Woman and These Boots are Made for Walkin' to show the changing role that women have played in this country. The show is not actually a concert. There is a little bit of plot involving a woman whose own changing personal history seems to reflect what is going on in the country at the time. However, the plot is slight and not nearly as interesting as the music. A slide show of famous women throughout history which plays on a big screen in the back of the stage loses much of its impact since it is placed directly behind the actresses on stage and therefore hard to see. The show is still worth seeing, however, because the music and singing are both great and ultimately the music is what is at the heart of this show.
